Kef fire risk 04/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8907 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0304 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1227 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9705 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Local fire fighters extinguished three separate fires between Tzannata and Agios Nikolaos, Elios-Pronnoi, yesterday evening. All looked to be deliberately started.

Microsoft Edge 105 won't start due to old group policy - How to fix

The new Microsoft Edge 105 is not starting for many Windows users due to a deprecated group policy used to disable reporting of usage and crash-related data to Microsoft.

If you find that Microsoft Edge will no longer start, you can delete the MetricsReportingEnabled value from the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge or the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge registry keys.

Probably not a problem for most users but, if it's a problem, might be easier just to use another browser until a new version fixes it.

Mykonos has had its fill of champagne-fuelled tourism

The Greek island makes a mint as a playground for rich and famous visitors. But locals say development has gone too far

...success has brought drugs, money laundering, protection rackets and organised crime. The once dirt-poor island ignited the country’s tourism industry in the wake of its “discovery” in the 1950s – by travellers visiting Delos, the nearby island long regarded as the ancient Greek world’s most sacred place – but is now dealing with the consequences of overdevelopment.

Microsoft Defender falsely detects Win32/Hive.ZY in Google Chrome, Electron apps

A bad Microsoft Defender signature update mistakenly detects Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Discord, and other Electron apps as 'Win32/Hive.ZY' each time the apps are opened in Windows.

Even though Microsoft Defender will continuously display these detections when apps are opened, it is important to note that this is a false positive, and your device is mistakenly being detected as infected.
